Do you honestly think it's just another Friday? No way! It's never "just another day" here at Windows Phone Central, or within the Windows community for that matter. DVLUP, the Nokia rewards program for Windows Phone developers launched #MakeAnAppDevHappyDay on Twitter last month as a one off, but it's back for the first Friday of each month. So, what's it all about and how can you get involved?
It's a simple concept that's easy to follow. Pick an app you really like on the Windows Phone Store and review it to provide some much desired feedback on the developer's work. Should you happen to provide a 4 or 5 star review, you'll have made the developer's day. Nokia suggests you repeat this process for all the apps you enjoy using and have installed on your device(s) - we recommend you do this too.
What makes this rather interesting is how developers are rather social on Twitter, using the hashtag #MakeAnAppDevHappyDay. Those who participated on the previous day were motivated and excited about the results, sharing their content with a broader audience. It also provided consumers a perfect opportunity to see who's behind their favourite apps. So here we are again with today (October 4th) designated as another happy developer day.
As noted above, DVLUP will be running this Twitter promotion on the first Friday of every month. But what exactly do you get out of it, apart from supporting developers and interacting with them on Twitter? Well, should you be following the hashtag throughout the day, you'll be able to check out new content you didn't even know existed. Wouldn't it be cool to find an awesome new app or game for the weekend ahead?
We've previously looked at consumer review etiquette, but this is a great way to get both parties involved. Head on over to Twitter now and participate in the #MakeAnAppDevHappyDay.
